( james ) with the legalization of adult marijuana just over a year old in this state, police in one east bay city are noticing a spike in a the armed robberies cannabis delivery drivers.( darya ) kron4's maureen kelly is taking an indepth look at the crime trend .. and what's being done to try and stop it. the combination of cash and a cash crop seems to be a very tempting target for some theives.....especially when they can have their to commit a robbery they'll go find a victim, liquor store convenience store but now people are using smart phones to order a victim to a location of their choosing and they know that the victim is going to bring marijuana and cash with them.concord pd says
9:32 am
they've seen as many of 4 armed stick ups of cannabis delivery drivers a month....and they aren't the only law enforcment agency to notice this trend.there's a significant increase and talking with other law-enforcement agencies i know that concord is not alone in that crime trend that it's occurring in other parts of contra costa county as well because cannabis is still illegal in the eyes of the federal government..... california pot sellers are stuck dealing in cash for the most part....which is luring in the criminal element, even more than the a few robberies that we have they've targeted cash and not even touched the marijuanain december a driver showed up for a drop off in the parking lot of the bank of america near the sun valley mall and was robbed by a handgun wielding suspect.....the theif grabbed both the pot and the cash....but police later found this duffle bag stuffed with pot products abandoned by the
9:33 am
side of 680.concord police believe that it's a crime that under reported....and even in the cases where police are called in, the victims often don't want to cooperate.even though it's legal it seems to be a little bit of an off the grid business it's kind a virgin territory that were in for surefor instance in that armed robbery that happened here near the sun valley mall police have a suspect but they're having a hard time getting the victim to call them back so we can make a positive idone recent hold up happened on this quiet street near newhall park just before 8p.we've seen them in apartment complexes and shopping centers and town as well as other parts of the countywe're mostly concerned it is the public safety issue, these robberies are happening in residential neighborhoods there occurring in strip malls, business parking lots we're concerned for the safety of the drivers who are the victims of these crimes and often times are confronted with armed suspects and also the fact that there could be a shooting in a populated area and uninvolved people could become victims as wellwe have sideview one i've thought each side and in front of you and there's one mounted in the back window that captures all the activity behind the vehicle the owner of ohana gardens cannabis delivery service is showing me some of the 360 degree cameras mounted in his company vehicles........the video is piped back to security service which is constantly monitoring the activity. not only
9:34 am
that.....their drivers also wear a body camera during their transactions. it's something they tell their customers when they place an if somebody has a bad intention they learn quickly that everything about our transaction is recorded, stream into a backend system made available to local police the whole 9 yardsin addition to that....the cars have safes for the money drops which the driver's can't open...and which are tracked with if anybody tries it funny and walk away with it rest a sure we can track them within a few seconds any particular scenario he believes it's because of his security precautions that none of his drivers have ever been robbed in the 2 and half years since his company, which is liscensed to deliver in many cities throughout california, was launched. meanwhile concord police says they are willing to work with these mobile marijuana help keep them's gotten to the point where concord pd is even considering letting these weed delivery services meet their customers here at the exchange zone which is a local located around the corner from police headquarters. it has video surveillance around the clock and offices or just steps away but it's kind of mind blowing when you think that a similar transaction what a been against the law not that long

9:51 am
works for everything.. marshawn: is kevin durant going to leave the warriors this summer? if you give the media a boring short non-answer, "you" won't make news for blowing up and "we" will be left to focus on the game.. oh right the game!!! the warriors were amazing... they beat the spurs by 39 points.. klay thompson had the game high 26.. but durant exploded (in a good way) with some monster dunks.. and had 23 points.. 9 assists and 8 rebounds.. warriors win 141 to 102. see kd? if you didn't blow up in the press conference .. this is all i'd be talkin about. that's my two cents kd, and it's free. and that's the buzz.
